We Brits can occasionally feel we miss out on US-specific tech, but Apple showed us a little love with the extremely clever collapsible plug it supplied with the Apple Watch.
Oneadaptr is now Kickstarting its own take on the idea, with three different Flip models on offer. The Duo has two USB sockets, the Quad four and the Power is a Duo with a built-in powerbank. You can back the project from £11 for the Duo.
The project is currently two-thirds of the way toward its £15k goal, with 25 days to go. The company previously successfully launched the Twist World Charging Station.
I do have to say I cringe when seeing either plug sitting on that iPad screen, though!

Interesting take on UK plug. It is a little thicker than the Mu but with much more features and looks like I can open it with just one hand.
That plug is the most jurassic on the planet. Seriously GB, catch a friggen clue. That thing is just plain EMBARRASSINGLY STUPID in size and function!!
The UK system is extremely safe, by including an earth. The pins also need to be meatier to cope with 240v. They are undeniably chunky, though.
I’m an immigrant 😋😎 and I love those plugs. So stable when plugged in. And they all have a fuse inside!
You Americans don’t know what you’re talking about 😋😎
Your plugs are hanging off the wall, which is not stable at all. 👎🏿
